Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is an important file in your plugin as it is parsed by WordPress.org to prepare the public listing of your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Tags: Please reduce the number of tags, currently 12 tag instead of maximum 10
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

custom-faq/faq.php 85% from 13 tests

The main file in "FAQ" v. 1.0 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Description: Keep the plugin description shorter than 140 characters (currently 265 characters long)
  • Main file name: Name the main plugin file the same as the plugin slug ("custom-faq.php" instead of "faq.php")
